For Tate, even the smallest of details don’t go unnoticed. As a Marketing Specialist for VisionPoint, she makes sure all ads are clear, concise, and error-free. She verifies that leads are accurate and up to date, ensuring our clients are able to connect with interested students in a timely manner. Tate makes sure that everything goes off without a hitch.
Before joining VisionPoint, Tate worked on political campaigns doing field work – voter outreach, phone banking, and canvassing. This work allowed her to strengthen her attention to detail, and she learned the importance of collaboration and straightforward communication. As a volunteer, Tate found herself performing tasks similar to her role at VisionPoint, checking for quality assurance, eventually working her way up the ladder towards the role of Field Director for a state senate campaign. Now, she’s adapting her skills to the world of higher education.
“I find working in higher education to be extremely fulfilling,” says Tate. “Much of the work I do revolves around connecting students with scholarships and opportunities they may not have known about otherwise, which is so important for improving access to educational resources.”
When she’s not combing through data and reports, Tate gains insight into the past, present, and future as a tarot card reader. Her idea of a perfect day involves time spent with friends and her beloved cat, Ravioli.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
